Very good keynote! Will read the book. Especially the part about estimations which I found very insightful.

Premature Optimization Mistakes
Lots of easy to implement quick wins and some good but generic advice. Would have liked to see a before/after example that would show the effect if you stack up all these performance tweaks. The pace of the talk was a bit too fast, but the speaker was very engaging.

Stress-free deployment
A very practical talk on solving the real world problems in a simple way. Some of the more difficult problems of deployment of larger environments (clusters/back-end systems/etc.) were not adressed.

APC & Memcache the High Performance Duo
High quality talk. Did miss some comments on tuning APC to maximize it's effectiveness (like finding the optimum size/ what to cache, what not).

In Search Of... Integrating Site Search
Ian exposes the core algorithms of search solutions very clearly and reviews several projects that implement these. Perfectly balanced conference talk, great speaker that really masters the material.

Get Off my Internets - building offline web applications
Very relevant talk about the best solution to keep users using your web app happy despite of flaky 3G, wifi or airplane modes. Parashuram showed how you do this the verbose way, and then how to do it practically using the right libs. I missed real world examples of apps that use these libs (are there any?) But loved the Star wars references:) and liked the mentions about the available documentation to get started quickly.
